  • 2013 - Josh Reddick hits three homers and teammates Jed Lowrie and Yoenis Cespedes also go deep as the Athletics defeat the Blue Jays, 14 - 6.
  • 2016 - Eight days after having been acquired by the Athletics at the trading deadline, Jharel Cotton makes a bid to throw only the fourth perfect game in Pacific Coast League history. After striking out Kyle Kubitza for out number 26, he gives up a triple to Doug Bernier with two outs in the 9th to spoil his attempt. He then strikes out the next batter to complete a one-hit shutout as Nashville defeats Round Rock, 3 - 0.
